Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

June 27, 2010 (having conviction)

taken at Sandy Cove
(during a personal retreat)

Having conviction is good as long as
it is a Christ directed conviction.
The danger is in developing and following
our own personal conviction.
We are “followers” of Christ.
Our goal is not to sail ahead of Him
with our own destination,
and then ask for His blessing,
but to seek His guidance
and do His will not ours.

“Seek the clasp of Christ's hand
before every bit of work, every hard task,
every battle, every good deed.
Bend your head
in the dewy freshness of every morning,
ere you go forth
to meet the day's duties and perils,
and wait for the benediction of Christ,
as He lays His hands upon you.
They are hands of blessing.
Their touch will inspire you
for courage, and strength,
and all beautiful and noble living.”
- J. R. Miller
